Tucked away in the far northwest corner of the state Ohio is the quiet town of Swanton. With a population of just under 4,000, Swanton is known across the state for its rich history. Reaching back to the post office that has been in operation since 1827, Swanton’s namesake is the nearby Swan Creek. Before the turn of the 20th century, Swanton was home to the A.D. Baker Company renowned for its steam-powered traction engines and equipment for road contractors.
Today, Swanton remains a great place to raise a family and experience the beauty of Ohio’s outdoors.
From Swanton, hop in a car and head east to the Great Lake city of Toledo. Sitting on the western edge of Lake Erie, Toledo is the fourth largest city in the state and has become a hub of culture for art lovers and glass workers.
But the real draw of the region is Lake Erie. One of five great lakes, Lake Erie is known internationally as an outdoor playground that draws thousands to its stunning shores every year. And, given its close proximity, Toledo or the quieter Swanton is the perfect starting point for your journey in Lake Erie.
